Mapping Prejudice: A Look at Jim Crow of the North and Its Legacy

Tuesday, November 17 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm via Zoom
Join us for this program in which we’ll view the documentary Jim Crow of the North. After the film, we will explore next-steps to address the damage wrought by these policies and hear from Golden Valley City Attorney Maria Cisneros, who helped launch the Just Deeds Project to remove restrictive racial covenants from deeds. We can take action even during a pandemic!

(UPDATE Kirsten Delegard, Ph.D. was going to lead this program but is unable to attend due to a family emergency.)

During this event, you will:

  • Learn how racial housing segregation was embedded in the Twin Cities and nationally.
  • Understand the federal policies and regulations that continued this segragation for decades.
  • See evidence of the current impacts of these institutionalized racial disparities.
  • Find out ways you can take action now.

A Zoom link will be published in the UUCM Friday Update email newsletter as the date approaches. If you are not already subscribed to the Friday Update, click here to subscribe or email Kate Flom to request the Zoom link.
